Raymond Beauchamp is a retired teacher and master sugarmaker (maple and honey) who has a passion for the history of maple syrup making from the days of the first Amerindians to our modern times as well as for local tales and legends along with traditional folk songs and dances.
In the pastoral surroundings of the apiary, to the sweet perfume of honey and flowers or the soft sound of a buzzing bee, he delights in sharing his know-how about beekeeping.
Along with Judith, his life partner of over 20 years, he manages all company operations with heartfelt energy.
Judith Charron is a Landscape Architecture graduate and a retired dairy farmer. She is now head of the food processing kitchen.
Let her soft voice tell you the about the story of a sugar shack that originated from a sudden urge to sew curtains.
Her gourmet creations flavoured with honey and maple syrup will heighten your senses and delight your taste buds with exciting combinations of high-heeled delicacies.
"La coulée sucrée" was born with the "Douceurs du Mont Vinoy", in Chénéville. Raymond and Judith, these two passionate souls, were the producers of the honey chosen by the Brasseurs de Montebello who made "The Queen of Mont Vinoy" a beer with a warm and loving taste. The legend does not say, however, whether it is Judith or the bee who was really "The Queen of Mount Vinoy".
